A youthful second
__________________


Mechanical trees and paper leaves;
stems and stalks of legacies
sit squat beneath the shaded eaves
of seasons growing wan.

Across the withered lawn and dirt
where older scars run underfoot:
newer creatures run and skirt
the obstacles warm-bright.

The light of clinging March extends
to fondle all the drooping stems
between the brush, around the bends
of springtime soon to pass.

And so, alas, the pollen-days
quick overtake the sullen corse
of winter's melancholy ways
a youthful second long.

The second to last is my favorite, the ones with the houses, the perspective of the trees up high, looking at the leaves, love it.

Thanks. It's made from a photo I took last year around the same time.

I love the meter/rhythm of this poem. Beautiful.

Mechanical trees and paper leaves;
stems and stalks of legacies
sit squat beneath the shaded eaves
of seasons growing wan.

LOVE this first stanza - the alliteration is gorgeous and I love the image it presents.

The way you changed the outlook of the images is out of these world totally. I have always struggled with writing a nature poem because descriptive imagery has always been a challenge but then this is beautiful, the description is beautiful

The light of clinging March extends
to fondle all the drooping stems
between the brush, around the bends
of springtime soon to pass.

This verse is beautiful although I haven't really experienced the weathers that are portrayed there, it felt so beautiful to be able to imagine it outwardly. Well written my friend. @dpend

I enjoyed reading this. You didn't much of a Spring. Just a couple weeks ago it was snowing. Wonder what the summer will bring for you.

All the images have their charm, but the last of the series in faded tones comes close to my twisted idea of chaotic beauty revealing an interior full of noise and fear. I look at an eye in the center and the eye looks at me. Inside and out, time flies the dreamy colors with the speed of a blink of an eye.

And so, alas, the pollen-days
quick overtake the sullen corse
of winter's melancholy ways
a youthful second long.

Hi @d-pend
They are very nice those photos, and those editions you have done, they give a surreal touch to the images very attractive, and the colors a special warmth. Thanks for sharing your art.

! Love the meter/rhythm and the editing was delightful. The first set is so very cool and then they just get better and better.

Thank you!

Fantastic editing, @d-pend!!!
I've always wondered what program does that.

Really love the way you combine your poetry with these edited photos. It's very dreamlike......
